Samsung seeks partnerships to improve access to education
Samsung Electronics is looking to form sustainable partnerships globally in a bid to improve education using technology. In a presentation to the African ministerial delegation at Innovation Africa 2016, the company said it is willing to work with governments in training and providing education solutions where required.
“For the continent to truly achieve economic growth, we implore both the private and public sectors to work closely together so that it can address the continent’s pressing issue around access to quality education,” Samsung corporate citizenship and public affairs manager Abey Tau said.
Samsung Electronic’s solar-powered Internet schools, smart schools and e-learning centres are among the solutions presented to improve access to quality education. “As a global citizen, we understand how important it is for us to use our technology to give back to society. And we have done just that through the various education solutions we’ve launched in Africa,” Tau said.
